Sim card not recognized

Sim card not recognized

Hi. Some day ago my ipad2 wifi+3G (european) stopped to recognize the sim card. I tried everything, iTunes reset, dfu reset, removing sim card, activating and deactivating airplane mode. Nothing...the sim card is ok on my phone so seems to be a hardware related issue and I'm out of warranty since march 1st (%^%%!!).

"Same issue, here is what works for me:

Powering it off sometimes help.Toggling airplane mode also helps.... after doing it MANY times

Apple products is only a fashion statement, in the real world they don't have durability."

Found out a method from cleaning coins, that applies to SIM-Cards. I had the same problem. I've cooked the sim-card in salty water with a bit of aluminium foil in it --> This takes away the oxidation from the metal on the chip. I've put the chip back in and it was instantly recognised! Hope that helpts

"NO SIM problem can happen to iPhone and iPad. It happen because the sim card is not connected to it place.

This method is worked for me. And i Hope it work for All of you too.

Here's the method:

1. Remove the sim card

2.Remove the Touchscreen, LCD and LCD Shield Plate.

3. Push down firmly at sim card slot. (Like pushing a button)

4. Insert the sim card, and see."
